Thinking of doing this one in March 2010. 100K in prizes with payout to the top 40. Has anyone have any feedback or have participated in a Smoke on Water Production comp?

cold, wet, didn't see the sun the 3 days we were down there... oh yeah and James Stephens hanging around our tent for basically the whole contest. Other then that it was well run, great live music, and made many new friends. New venue this go around and the larger prize pool will for sure have a bunch of people coming this year.

We did Degaque (Smoke on the Water Prod) last year, other than the weather and haulin water, it was well organized.

We've done 4 of the Smoke on the Water contests and all have been very well run. The only problem we've had was the loading in and out last year at Little Rock and that wasn't the fault of the organizer it was just a difficult place to get everyone in and out of.

We have cooked Pine Bluff, Hot Springs, and Little Rock, and Ronnie runs good contests in general. My personal experience has always been ok -- Little Rock last year, was a little touch and go... but I think the venue was not suited for a BBQ contest. So, it was working with what you had - and crappy weather. This year should be better with the new venue.

The themed dinner party was fun though.... I did bring Green River soda for muddy water drinks for all though... OK and some beefs... Which had green jardiniera on it... So I guess I was in the "theme"...

Goo dthing Steph isn't around, or she would be yelling at me...

I would have to agree, if you didn't fix that door for us it would have been a long drive back to St. Louis.

Thanks All, I think an RV park for a comp is brilliant. Everyone gets their own personal hook-ups.

OC Pig Assassins can you trailer all our equipment, we will fly and meet you there:mrgreen:

That sounds good, we will probably be leaving the Wed before. You probably will swing down through PA on 81.

I think the contest in March 2010 will be better than this year at the Clinton Center! The RV park is on the opposite side of the river and is better sheltered from the winds. Due to scheduling restraints in March, BBQr's Delight won't be cooking it. I am planning on being a judge or table captain and I will definitely bring pellets to any who request them.

In 2009, the weekend before the contest, temps were in the 70s and it was gorgeous! Weather could be terrible or great?!!??

We are planning on cooking at it, and probably will need pellets. I will be sure to submit my order in plenty of time. Hoping for good weather.
